Pick Your Poison: Tuesday 8-1-17

With Lollapalooza this week and a general slowdown in the music season happening at the end of summer, I’d like to announce a brief break for Pick Your Poison. When I say brief, I mean basically about a week or two at most. This will allow for more time and focus on events like Lollapalooza, plus a short break just to spend a little time recovering from a very busy summer concert season. But don’t worry! You won’t miss anything, I promise. Once things return to normal around mid-month, I’ll play catch-up and feature a bunch of tracks that might have slipped through the cracks during that break period. In the meantime, the songs below will have to tide you over. Thanks for understanding, and here’s hoping things pick back up as the fall begins to creep in. Don’t miss downloads in this set from Best Girl Athlete, DieAlps!, A Drug Called Tradition, and John Elderkin & ¡Moonbeams No Mas!. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from BOSCO, CYMBALS, Drain Gang, Jordan Rakei, Kedr Livanskiy, Midnight Sister, NSTASIA, SISTERS, The Weeknd (ft. A$AP Rocky & Young Thug), Yumi Zouma and more!

Best Girl Athlete – In Your Head

DieAlps! – I Can See It Now

DreamVacation – Zero One

A Drug Called Tradition – With You Miss You

Oof, I’ve had a wild weekend of fun that’s spilling over into Monday, and I’m feeling a little worn down today as a result.
